Screaming Eagles News and Events
Tailgate + Brunch = Awesome!
Thanks to all who came out to join us at the ECC's Matthew Henson Center last weekend - we hope you had as much fun as we did! Sunday's tailgate photo album is now online - have a look!
We are not holding a tailgate for tomorrow's friendly against CD Olimpia, but we will be back at the ECC September 29th when D.C. hosts Montreal!
D.C. United vs CD Olimpia
Wednesday 9/19 @ 8 pm - Audi Field
D.C. United vs Montreal Impact
Saturday 9/29 @ 7 pm
Tailgate starts at 3 pm
Please note: Supporters' Section tickets for the Montreal match are extremely limited - this section is already nearly sold out! We are offering a few additional reserved (not GA) seats in sections 134-135, adjacent to the North Stands. Use this link, with promo code EAGLES - don't delay!
Save yourself time at the door and snag a one-day membership for the tailgate online now. Better yet, for the cost of two tailgates, get yourself a full membership, and you're covered for all remaining tailgates this season! Plus, new members get a sweet jersey as part of their membership package.

Sunday's pre-game fundraising efforts to support Big Rob in his battle with leukemia were a rousing success! Donations totaled over $3500, and United co-owner Steve Kaplan bid $1000 on the team-autographed jersey.
There are only three more days to get yourself a terrific shirt with Dave Johnson's image and signature line! All proceeds to benefit Rob's fund.
Shirt not your style? You can donate at any time via Rob's GoFundMe site.
In the News
Sometimes a tie feels like a loss, but the playoffs are not out of reach for United. The match against Montreal on September 29th just got that much more important. Do you have your tickets yet?
To no-one's great surprise, Luciano Acosta's stellar performance in Sunday's insane 3-3 tie with New Jersey earned him a roster spot on the MLS Team of the Week!
Acosta is also nominated for Goal of the Week for that ridiculous chip over RB GK Luis Robles. Voting closes at midnight tonight, so go vote!
